the u.s. navy has fully accounted for all unmanned vehicles operating in the middle east region. we have the latest developments now from cairo. a u.s. source says that if the iranians do have something, it is not an actively operating u.s. navy drone. what would that mean? could this actually be a fake? >> it could be. it's not clear right now, but iranian officials have a different story. we don't know when or how this u.s. drone was allegedly captured, but you can be sure iran is going to count this as a big intelligence victory over the u.s. you can also be sure they'll use this to portray the u.s. as the aggressor in the region. that's what iran has done for more than three decades. briefly, let's tell you about the reports from state media in iran. reports say iran captured a drone flying over the northern persian gulf waters after it allegedly flew into iranian airspace. this is a region close to iran's only nuclear power plant. a statement by iran's revolutionary guard said this happened over the past few days. the statement described the drone as a u.s.-made scan eagle. this is

the marines do, that the army, navy, and air force cannot do? if your answer is amphibious assaults, include a couple amphibious assault-trained battalions or brigade's within each combat division or add another week to the army basic training for amphibious assault. just think about the duplication that could be eliminated with this concept. if all those that are in the defense industry now, as they profess that our future wars will be more of a technology base, this seems appropriate. out of the box, and popular, yes. complicated and hard to do, but that is my suggestion. host: from the "washington times" this morning -- and this is the wall street journal -- finally, we want to take this call from don in michigan. caller: good morning. about the fiscal cliff, i think we should go over the cliff and then start from there. freedom is not free. we have forced to pay for -- wars to pay for. we have to pay bills. god bless america and c-span. everybody have a great day. host: thank you. we have two guests. we will continue looking at the so called "fiscal cliff" negotiations with mary agnes ca

international news at this hour, the russian defense ministry says the navy squadron has set off for the lead attorney in provision coming amid official talk about a possible evacuation of russians from syria. if russia has been the staunchest ally of the bashar assad regime. meanwhile, parliament is getting ready to adopt a measure that would ban adoption of russian children by americans. last week, president obama signed into law a bill imposing sanctions on russians who are found to be connected with human-rights abuses. and back here in the states on wall street, stock futures are edging higher on emerging signs that the white house and congress may be moving closer to a budget deal. a new proposal for president obama drops his plan to raise taxes on individuals morning -- earning more than $200,000, and families making more than $250,000. he is now offering a new threshold of $400,000. the head of the -- ahead of the opening bell, futures are up about 25 points. those are headlines on c-span radio. >> one of the things that did surprise me a little, i did conduct a nationwide survey of g
evolved last march, but this is one of the most senior. could it be a turning point? joining us now, navy captain chuck nash. thanks for being with us. how significant is this defection? >> well, i think it just shows that the tower's crumbling around assad, and it's certainly not good for him, and it's going to make those who are supporting him question his staying power. and it looks, at least from this and some of the efforts that the rebels are making, that his days truly are numbered. patti ann: so what would that mean for the future of syria? >> well, it depends on, first off, how does this end? that's the big question. and who makes it end? he's going to have to make the calculation as did moammar gadhafi of if he makes a deal with someone, is it something that could be honored in the future, or is he going to make a deal, give up his position -- and his position right now are two things. he's got chemical weapons and other secrets that he knows because he's been dealing with the iranians, and the third thing is to stop the killing. so if he makes a deal, it's to, it's to deal with
could have hired navy s.e.a.l.s to come in and do a better job. they did everything that they were trained and hoped to do. we locked the doors. they have cameras on them. we have security officers. in some cases we have full on police officers in larger schools they have police forces. this was a deranged individual. and he hurt us as a nation. but i think what's also important is to understand that from this tragedy we're going to see that we as a state and as a country are going to come together and make sure that the folks here in newtown get every single thing that we can provide them. we can't get them their children back. but we can let them know that they are loved and supported and we're going to be there for them throughout the holidays and beyond. >> steve, what about the survivors? all the kids that heard and saw things that they will never forget. at what point does their ability to learn, their development, all of that suffer? i mean, can they ever get back to what they were? >> that's the tough part. that's the tough part. no one knows the impact of a tragedy on a ch
,000 uniformed badged special operations forces and they come from the navy, marines, army, air force. host: in terms of the budget, over the last decade, it was to $0.5 billion in 2001 during now it is in excess of $10.5 billion today. guest: that's right. the budget has almost quintupled. a great deal of that has also gone to the high end -- both the expansion and personnel, because people do cost money, the training and salaries for them, but also to a lot of this has gone to the high end special mission units and equipping them with state-of- the-art communications, stealth helicopters, a number of state of the art commands interest, also, the special operations command down in tampa, before you are-start command has grown dramatically and also has a number of infrastructure investments down there. so it really has become a much larger portion of the armed forces than it was previously, but it is important to note that even with this growth, it's still a is less than 5% of the entire u.s. military and less than 4% of the budget. host: the movie getting so much attention is coming out in
in the navy. it is not a captain. it is an animal. all we have done is go through and look at areas where we could not necessarily save all the money, but we could transfer responsibilities that are not truly in the defense of the country out of the pentagon, and consolidate programs and save a significant amount of money. >> this weekend, talk with senator tom coburn about the fiscal cliff, the affordable care act, and the future of the republican party. the president has written several books and reports, including his latest, "the debt bomb." live sunday at the 12:00 noon eastern. >> no, we hear from a syrian opposition spokesman about the latest developments in the ongoing syrian civil war. the spokesman urged the international community to intervene, and calls for u.s. leadership, rather than just humanitarian aid. from johns hopkins, this is an hour and a half. >> thank you. thank you for everyone. thank you for the john hopkins university for organizing this event. let me start by sharing with you a personal story that just happened today, which gives you just a sense of how our lives
-- comment. first of all, i do not think it is fair to say that reagan -- spending cuts. remember the navy. he was part of that. let me get to my main comments. it is my opinion that increases in the marginal tax rate may actually be good for hiring and increasing itemized deductions. you think about it this way -- an increase in the marginal tax rate at the top end will make an itemized deduction, an additional hire more valuable to a business -- and the value of that charitable deduction. the additional hire, a person, a company who is just a little bit over the threshold. they want to take a deduction for the additional man. the higher is worth more to him. host: so let's get a response. grover norquist. guest: there are several points here. there is the personal income tax. a lot of small businesses pay the personal income tax. they are called subchapter s corporations. one of the concerns as it would take small businesses to 43.4% top rate from 35% today. the corporate rate like general motors or ibm, that is 35%, and they're not planning on raising that. in fact, there is a move in t
